Favorite Carving Wood?

I have not seen any one talk about carving apple wood. For close to a century it was the go-to wood for saw handles. Looks a little like olive, is very tough and hard. Does not chip easily so one can get bold with their design complexity.  Not the wood for a beginner but will certainly teach you to keep your tools sharp.
